2 Corinthians: His grace is enough: “My grace is sufficient for you,” said God to Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:9. It is a major theme in a letter in which Paul defends himself against attacks from those who stress power. Paul has learnt through his trials that it is God’s grace that makes us strong. As he begins he focuses on comfort in trouble. We have a God who comforts us. It is this grace we rely on as we seek to build a community of comforting grace.
